the absolute best tv ever?
i know there's already a LOST thread and this is hardly my most unexpected or original moment as a DiSer, but rewatching some episodes it's so good, far far better than i ever realised at the time. It's probably never been better since.
For a massively popular ABC show it can be pretty brutal and out there at times, far more so than now. Nearly every single character is pretty compelling and it has the perfect blend of mythology and character-based stuff. The flashbacks format back then also worked incredibly well and discovering things about the characters for the first time was almost as good as the main island narrative.
Michael Giachhino was also maybe at his best for the whole thing too. The most worthy oscar winner in ages. And the song montages while pretty cheesy are well lovely.
lost - dead good, innit.
